Eduardo, you can perform the desired operation by first assigning a variable to your original solution set at the beginning of your Solve command line. Then, in your Plot command line, you may call all or part of the solution set as a function of the independent variable/parameter, in your case x. The two lines of code below accomplish these goals in this order. solution = Solve[5*x+4*y==12, y] Plot[Evaluate[y /. solution], {x,0,2}] Regards, J.
